Rio Tinto Naturescape, Kings Park & Botanic Gardens by Plan (E)
Client: Botanic Gardens & Park Authority (WA)
An innovative response to a challenging brief, Rio Tinto Naturescape delivers not only a natural creek system as a playspace for children, but it does so in a manner that is respectful and sensitive to the existing environmental conditions and cultural systems.
The thoughtful, contemporary design elements, sculpters and hierarchy of paths also provide an educational experience and journey for adults and carers.
This responsive design sets an exemplar for the future provision of recreational and educational facilities in bushland settings located in urban environments.
